DIY scanning electron microscope

OK, here's a project for all the do-it-yourselfers out there. Build your own SEM! This guy did it and does a really good job of explaining how an SEM actually works.

I guess first hand knowledge on how one is put together really helps to understand the fundamentals of how all the pieces work together to make a microscope.

Makes me wish I had more time and a better supplied garage.
